A former communist country, Romania has embraced the possibilities of a lucrative future by recently joining NATO and the EU. It has a huge percentage of Christians (96%) and is dominated by the Orthodox church (87%). An increasing percentage of the population is Evangelical but there is still opposition within the church itself. A lot of the Orthodox affiliation is “inherited” as opposed to a deeply held, personal relationship with Christ.
Please pray for:
- Church-planting efforts to have a great impact.
- The growing missions movement in Romania and the other countries of the Balkan Peninsula.
- The evangelical movement to grab the otherwise nominal believers within the church and ignite a fire for Jesus within them.
